salt Puppet Module

Manage salt client and server via Puppet.

##Module Description

This module can be used to install a single salt master/minion or both on one machine.

##Setup

###What salt affects

  • salt master/minion package.
  • salt master/minion configuration files.
  • salt master/minion service.

###Beginning with salt

Just add manifest:

Or if you want to change params you need to include the underlying modules:

class { 'salt::minion': minion_package_name => 'salt-minion-git', }
class { 'salt::master': master_package_name => 'salt-master-git', }

##Usage

All interaction with the salt module can be done through the main salt class.

###I just want salt, what's the minimum I need?

include '::salt'

###I just want a salt minion?

include '::salt::minion'

###I just want a salt master?

this will install a salt master and a minion for itself.

include '::salt'
